After the bolts are taken off the bracket (are they welded on the bracket?) how are the bushings pressed in and out? What tools are needed to do the press? Thanks

Are you talking the bushings of the spring perches?
If so, why don't you just buy new perches. They're not very expensive.

I think I torched them, until they lit on fire.. Then they kind of smoked and burnt for a few minutes, and then came shooting out the side... I then just pushed new poly ones in (Which weren't as tight, and they seemed to rotate a little, so I guess we'll see... )...

I want all my FoMoCO were it should be. The bushings are sold so it must be an option, I just don't know how to get around the studs in the bracket.

The bolts on my originals are welded on.

I had to torch the bushings out and I pressed the poly ones in.

Pressed them in eh. I swear my poly ones just slid in..

And yeah, the bolts on mine could be pressed out. I think 1 or two did have weld though.
